February Artful INKables Hop Time!


Welcome to the Artful Inkables hop! If you arrived here from Jen's blog, then you are in the right spot! If not, you should begin the hop on Kristin’s Blog (Artful Inkables), so that you can get the full show.

Of course, when I saw these cute birdhouse images from the new Artful INKables set Any Birdy Home?, you know I thought of all sorts of scenes I could make with them! (and is that name fun or what!?) Today I have the birdhouse up on a "pole" with sunflowers growing beneath. I can get carried away sometimes so I kept these scene simple by using DP for my sky and punched/embossed paper for the grass.
Next stop along the way is Crystal. Hop on over and be sure to leave her a kind comment as she always does for so many others.

Stamps: Artful Inkables Any Birdy Home?
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery, kraft, GP110, SU Bashful Blue DP
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Copics, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Nestabilities Labels 8, MS Grass punch, MS Garden Trellis punch, EK Success Rock Fern punch (with leaves cut off to use as sunflower stems)

Enjoy!
